Add Explosives (Dynamite/C4 or whatever, as long as we can blow up walls) there is nothing fun about building yourself in and going afk while mindlessly chopping on a huge wall. I’d rather be out farming shit to craft explosives, make them expensive so resources become somewhat valuable, because right now they aren’t. I guess they made everything cheap to build so the can stress test servers?
Remove the sway on weapons, i can’t be the only one that absolutely hates this annoying feature? Removes so much from the gameplay when you have to stand still to fire accurately, but hey, it’s REALISTIC right? The Gameplay in Old Rust was actually really good with the P250 sniping and later on M4/Kev/Medkit/Blockade fights. That was fun and the skill cap was way higher then now…
These are the two main things that would make this game more competitive, some other small thins:
Make it so that you can’t repair buildings within a certain time frame after them being hit(attacked) this way people can’t just stand there and repair their shit while being raided and actually have to defend themselves with weapons.
Walls should be more expensive to upgrade(I can understand if you wan’t to keep it low for testing purposes) perhaps also reduce the time it takes to upgrade and drastically increase the cost? Less boring more ACTIVE work farming.
In general make the weapons more reliable(accuracy) and if you want a noticeable difference between low tier(Pipe Shotgun, Revolver) and high tier(SMG, Shotgun) rather change the damage, this is a good way to reduce the randomness of the game.
These are just some things of the top of my mind, nice work on the new game so far, wish you all the success.
